COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families: Fairmont Schools has prioritized two pillars in our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, both of which have informed all of our decision-making during this unprecedented time: protecting the health and well-being – both physical and emotional – of our community, and providing academic stability for our students.
Fairmont Schools is Orange County’s oldest and largest secular, co-educational
preschool-12th grade private school.

– Denise Byrne, Parent
